I am Shri Narendra Nath Baruah, popularly
known as N.N. Baruah. I was born at a remote village of the far North East corner of Assam
(India). The name of my village is Baligaon in Dhakuakhana Mouza, in Lakhimpur district.
The area is very backward and underdeveloped .
The irony is that even after 55 years of independance , a part of my village separated by
river Charikaria is still not having the modern amenities like electricity ,
telephone etc including my parental house where my mother (85) still stays. The part
on north of the river has grown into a small township after its elevation to
sudivisional H.Q. Some semblance of modern life is visible there. But a large area
with tribal population on south of the river upto the bank of the mighty river
Brahmaputra, 9 km away from my native village is still under the grip of darkness
where we miss even a motorable road. The Assam Government has not
thought it fit to develop this area. May be because of being a tribal constituency (!) and
because it could not produce a Chief Minister or a strong political leader worth his salt.
Fortunately I could manage to settle permanently at Guwahati, the premier city of Assam.
The noted literature Homen Borgohain who also stays in Guwahati
hails from the same village where I was born.
A Civil Engineer by profession after
graduation in 1961 in Civil Engineering from Assam Engineering College, Jalukbari,
Guwahati, I served under Assam PWD for long 32 + years before superannuation on 1st
of September, 1993. I started my service career on 16th of June 1961.
